Clinical care and disease prognosis

Within this theme, the chair group Nutrition and Disease aims to improve health of those who are being treated for or have recovered from a nutrition-related disease. This includes clinically orientated research focused on short-and long-term recovery of chronic and acute diseases through healthy and sustainable diets and well-accepted nutritious foods combined with physical activity. We focus on cardiometabolic diseases, cancer, gastro-intestinal diseases and obesity.

Research is conducted in close collaboration with the Alliance Nutrition in Health Care and various peripheral and academic hospitals.
